Winter fun away from the slopes

Even away from the slopes, the Zillertal has much to offer. A total of 16 toboggan runs - reachable on foot or with the lift - promise tons of fun for the whole family. Some runs are floodlit in the evening. Snow-covered forests and fields as well as rustic huts are just waiting to be discovered on winter hikes or snowshoeing expeditions. A total of 400 marked winter hiking trails offer exceptional views. Completely away from familiar paths, ski tours will take you up the mountain. Of course, we recommend the accompaniment of experienced ski guides. In addition, the Zillertal offers a network of cross-country ski trails with 125 km of classic and skating routes. And for all those who want to head even higher up and gaze down at the Zillertal from a bird's-eye perspective, we recommend spectacular tandem flights in winter. Goosebumps are guaranteed! 

Our in-house wellness area invites you to work up a sweat in the sauna on particularly cold days or relax in an aromatic bath. Whether a skiing vacation or simply for relaxation and recreation in the Zillertal Alps, our hotel offers the highest comfort in a perfect location.

Tobogganing in the Zillertal

Sixteen toboggan runs with a total length of 45 km provide thrillingly fun experiences in the Zillertal. Racing downhill rides, steep curves, and bumps make for an unforgettable tobogganing adventure both day & night.  

30 of the 45 km of slopes are floodlit, so nothing stands in the way of a fun ride late into the evening. Head up to the starting point on foot or on the lift, enjoy the magic of the huts, and then fly like the wind back down into the valley - it's fun for the whole family. A toboggan rental is available on-site.

Ski tours and freeriding

With its exceptional landscape, the Zillertal is one of the insider tips here - and conditions that could not be more ideal prevail. Who knows...maybe such a nature and mountain experience will become the absolute highlights of your vacation. 

Despite all modern technology and resources, one thing hasn't changed: off-piste tours require a high degree of responsibility. Take the opportunity to join a guided ski tour. Touring skis and essential avalanche safety equipment are available from ski schools and sports shops. As tempting as it may be: never go freeriding alone!  

Tandem flights

Unforgettable - experience the uniqueness of the Zillertal from up above.

Tandem paragliding flights are offered throughout the year in the Zillertal. The thermals are very good in spring, and the flowers are blooming in the valley, and lush greenery covers the valley floor. In June, the lifts are in operation so higher starting points are more easily reachable in summer, and you can escape the summer heat for a few hours with a refreshing breeze at lofty heights high above the Zillertal. When the leaves change colors and the lifts are no longer in operation, paragliding flights are a special experience. In winter, the flights are shorter but all the more rewarding.   

The local tandem pilots have years of flying experience and know their profession and the terrain very well. If you want to venture a tandem flight, we guarantee this will be a memorable experience. We will be happy to organize a tandem flight for you in the Zillertal during your stay in our hotel.
